The Second Farber Center International Conference was held on December 19th, 1995 at Bar Han University. Israel. The topic of the conference was: "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."
The present volume summarizes the controversial and interesting issues as well as the experimental and research results as discussed by the distinguished invited speakers. The term "chronic fatigue syndrome" was created to describe a group of symptoms that has often been popularly referred to as the "yuppie flu. " The unusual and puzzling symptoms of CFS include severe fatigue, weakness, fever, depression, and sore throat and lymph nodes. Several other disorders seem to share many of the CFS' symptoms to various degrees and since no undisputed biological etiology has been identified, it has often been regarded with great suspicion as a legitimate and organic disorder. Only in cases of infectious mononucleosis ("kissing disease") was the Epstein-Barr herpesvirus found. The controversy among physicians and other healthcare professionals concerns the very existence of CFS as a unique entity well differentiated from other terms such as fibromyalgia, neurasthenia, or special kinds of depression.
